Rainscreen Cladding Brackets

Brackets AGS

Our Brackets have Certified A1 fire resistance (+120 minutes) with excellent corrosion resistance (C5 corrosion category). Both brackets and rails can be used in industrial areas with aggressive atmospheres, high humidity, and high salinity

Magnelis®, is unique pre-galvanised steel with a zinc-based coating including 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium for the highest protection and durability, even in aggressive environments.

Patented brackets design take care of elements like hole drilling that extend the way temperature spreads through the bracket, improving overall thermal isolation

Magnelis steel is chemically compatible with alkaline building materials. Therefore applying pads of any kind, is not necessary and also raises thermal isolation of the concept.

Best thermal bridging results using AGS brackets explained

Cladding is a crucial part of any building. A high-performance, energy-efficient cladding system not only protects the interior of the building from wind and moisture, but it reduces heat gain in the summers and prevents heat loss in the winters, lowering your electricity bills dramatically.

The reason AGS brackets and rails use Magnelis® pre-galvanized steel as the material of choice is because it provides unparalleled corrosion protection, durability, and thermal efficiency. Our products offer cost-effective results as opposed to aluminium, post-galvanized steel and stainless steel, giving us a competitive advantage.

  • The bracket HI+ is made of specially designed steel having 2.5mm thickness of wall bearing capacity compared to aluminium counterpart with 4mm thickness.
  • The HI+ (figure 1) bracket indicates good thermal isolation parameters compared to aluminium counterparts

Bracket HI+ made of steel (figure 3) without thermo pad successfully restrains cold conduction to a wall covered with mineral wool.

Why Choose AGS Rainscreen Cladding Products?:

Reduced Thermal Bridging

Insulation is a crucial part of any building. Insulation systems serve as thermal barriers between the interior and exterior of the structure. A high-performance energy efficient cladding system not only protects a building from wind and moisture, but it reduces heat gain in the summers, and heat loss in the winters, lowering your electricity bills dramatically.

This is why AGS brackets and rails use Magnelis®—unique pre-galvanized steel with a zinc-based coating—as it provides unprecedented levels of corrosion protection, durability and thermal efficiency. Our products guarantee cost-effective results compared to aluminium, post-galvanized steel, and stainless steel—giving us a competitive advantage!

Advantages of Using Magnelis® Brackets

  • Excellent corrosion resistance (C5 corrosion category). Our brackets and rails can be used in industrial areas with aggressive atmospheres, high humidity, and high salinity
  • Self-healing effect ensures excellent edge protection
  • Proven A1 fire resistance
  • Very low thermal conductivity
  • Excellent processing properties
  • Environmentally-friendly manufacture process

Fire and Thermal Conductivity

A fire test has shown that when AGS brackets were tested against aluminium brackets, our patented solutions withstood heat whereas the aluminium brackets melted away.

Tests show falling of the aluminium facades during fire

The above images show that the supporting structure was completely melted when aluminium brackets were applied, which is mainly because the melting point of aluminium is around 630 °C and the test was conducted at 800 °C. This also eliminates the use of non-metallic connectors since their melting point is lower than aluminium itself.

What sets us apart from aluminium ventilated facade system is that our patented brackets take care of elements like hole drilling that extend the way temperature spreads through the bracket, improving overall thermal isolation.

How AGS Stainless Steel Solutions Offer A Competitive Advantage:

  • The bracket HI+ is made of specially designed steel having 2.5mm thickness of wall bearing capacity compared to aluminium counterpart with 4mm thickness.
  • The HI+ (figure 1) bracket indicates good thermal isolation parameters compared to aluminium counterparts

Bracket HI+ made of steel (figure 3) without thermo pad successfully restrains cold conduction to a wall covered with mineral wool.

  • AGS brackets (steel) have the melting temperature of 1400°C, which is lower than the fire temperature during fire tests conducted by the Building Research Institute.
  • Steel is chemically compatible with alkaline building materials. Therefore applying pads of any kind, is not necessary and also raises thermal isolation of the concept.
